A meteorologist for the Weather Channel, Matt Seidel, has found himself the object of Internet mockery today after he referred to a photograph of a snowman from Nashua, New Hampshire as a “snowperson.”
Yes, you read that correctly. He called it a “snowperson.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you allow political correctness to run amok with minimal effort to keep it in check.
1st snowperson of the season and the 2nd snowfall in less than a week in Nashua, NH. Thanks to @TheMattSaffer for the eyes, nose, etc.

“1st snowperson of the season and the 2nd snowfall in less than a week in Nashua, NH,” Seidel wrote in text accompanying the photo.
So, was Seidel joking? Was he serious? Whatever his motivations, the Twitterverse took issue — in a mostly fun-loving way — to Seidel’s politically correct characterization.
“Snowperson.” Lol. https://t.co/JpYmFJT41t

For years now, the left has told us that there’s a “war on women,” but you know, if you really look at our culture closely, it seems the absolute opposite is true. Any time there’s something exclusively for men or using masculine pronouns, ect., it’s immediately targeted by intolerant radical feminists who are attempting to abolish all the beautiful differences between men and women.
Calling a “snowman” a “snowperson” is just taking things way, way too far. It’s always been called a “snowman” and that’s forever what it will be.
